    Unhappy My friend was just killed

    He was shot twice in the chest in his home, and he lives in the same neighborhood I do, not more than a few yards away. Nobody knows yet why this happened, but he's the kind of guy who just doesn't have enemies. He was only 20 years old.

    His name was Aaron Lamere. Please keep a prayer in your heart for his family and friends.



    R.I.P. Aaron. You will be missed, man.

    Shade

    It was just a year ago that the wife of my best friend died under "circumstances". I have yet to feel the full loss of her.

    I'm terribly sorry for your loss and will keep you, him, and his family in my prayers.

    I am very sorry to hear this, Shade.

    I really don't know what to say. Stay strong, I'm sure your friend would want it that way.

    Shade - very sorry to hear that. Impossible to knopw if it was something random or not obviously, but Shade, be careful, that neighborhood isn't as safe as it used to be.

    Such violence can only be described as a senseless waste.

    My condolences.

    You know how I feel, Brian. I am stunned and I'm sorry if I didn't show it more earlier, I just don't know how to react and so I'm compartmentalizing it and that's not fair to you or Aaron. I'd say I hope you feel better but I know I wouldn't so stay as strong as you can.

    What a tragedy. Going through a similar situation I have learned that you never get over it but you somehow learn to live with it. Stay strong.

    So sorry to hear the bad news, Shade. It is difficult dealing with this kind of loss. If there is anything I can do, or you want to talk (to a complete stranger on the internet), I would be glad to listen.

    Everyone involved will be in my prayers.

    Take care.

    Man, I can't believe that, Shade. Aaron was truly a funny, silly, sweet guy. I met him at the eastside Magic convention. I even came home and told my wife how much I liked him. Unbelievable. I just read the story in the paper and saw the story on the news. If you need anything, give me a call.
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    It will be two years next month since I lost a close friend. It's one of those things that make you really appreciate your friends, and it brings a group of you a lot closer. Keep your head up.

    Thank you to everyone for the condolences. It's been really rough, and I don't even think it'll completely settle in until the funeral. Talking to his grandmother today was especially tough.

    I have a little more information on the situation, but still no suspect or motivation has been identified. I'll share what I can later. Right now, I'm just completely exhausted.

    Thanks again everyone.

    One more thing. A few of Aaron's closest friends are making t-shirts in his honor. If you would like to purchase one, they're $20, with all proceeds going to his family. Or, if you'd just like to donate anything at all, that would be great as well.
